062    MEDLIN HEIRS FAMILY

      Located in Durham off the north side of South Miami Boulevard (NC 70) across from East End Ave.

      Coordinates: 35d 58m 36.2s N; 78d 51m 11.9s W Click here for Google maps

      This family cemetery has about 32 graves with markers dating from 1892 to 1972. Canvassed by Lucille Glenn (1981). Updated by Allen Dew in September 2015.

      The Medlin Family Heirs Cemetery has been in the family since its inception. Originally part of a large farm owned by the original Medlin Family in the area, the land has been divided among family members, and most of it sold over the years. However, in every case, the cemetery did not convey with any sale, so the family cemetery is still in our possession and care. All the people interred there are family members, actual descendants, or spouses and children of descendants. Mr. Vernon Calvin Porterfield and his sister are currently responsible for the upkeep of the cemetery.

      The cemetery is now directly beside the new construction for the West End Connector Road with improvements being made to Hwy 70. New access to the cemetery is from Wadesboro Street off of Lynn Rd.
